Harrys of London CEO steps down

The chief executive of British luxury footwear and accessories label Harrys of London has left after two years in the role.

Steven Newey has stepped down with immediate effect.

Harrys of London adviser and former Trinity Limited chief executive Richard Cohen will oversee the process to replace Newey.

The news comes a few months after US property and media entrepreneur Charles S Cohen bought Harrys of London for an undisclosed sum, from shareholders led by US-based private equity firm Palladin Consumer Retail Partners.

A spokesman for Harrys of London confirmed that Richard Cohen is not related to the US tycoon.

Newey was appointed to the job in June 2015. His previous roles include group commercial director at Mulberry and general manager of Europe and the Middle East at luxury men’s footwear brand Berluti.

He has also held positions at Italian luxury clothing and accessories brand Loro Piana, and Alfred Dunhill, Tommy Hilfiger and Hermès.
